The location is not so central yet its still near as if you rent a car its just 5 minutes drive to the city centre. The room was very clean and tidy. The morning breakfast was as well very good. Staff were very friendly - they even lent us an umbrella when it was raining. Private parking is also available... More

Even though we had quite a long ride to the hotel from the airport, it was worth it. The hotel is situated close to the sea with Etna view on the other side (we could see the eruptions during the night). The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast with delicious cakes and good variety of things to eat... More

First of all, don't try to find an "Idea" name on a hotel! We had a big problem finding it, and when trying, met a few people having the same problem...there's a big illuminated sign "Ognina" on the roof, but the name Idea is nowhere to be found. Don't try to find it by adress either! It's located just behind... More

Lots of pluses and minus for this hotel. Rooms basic and in need of renovation. Staff very helpful and friendly. On a major road overlooking a petrol station if you got a room on the road side of the hotel. Lovely sea view if you got a room on the ocean side. We initially got a petrol station room but... More

The rooms could do with a bit of attention in terms of maintenance, especially the bathrooms, this by no means detracted from the overall experience as they were clean and perfectly adequate for our stay. We found the hotel to be ideally placed. Just outside the busy centre of Catania, so you avoid the noise and hassle of the town.... More

The staff was incredibly kind!! Right next to the sea, the scenery is incredible!Good breakfast! I would def come back :) But car is a must if you stay in this hotel, or you have to walk a lot to get to the center...Don't trust the buses :D But HIGHLY recommended!

The hotel was marketed as being close to the sea which was a little misleading. We (and our sat nav) found it difficult to find. The staff were fairly friendly and the impressive reception area would lead many to expect much more from this hotel. The rooms were very small although scrupulously clean. The breakfast was disappointing. No orange juice... More

My wife and I spent 3 days in Catania and got this hotel for 45 Euros a night and thought it was a good deal. A simple breakfast was included as well as free parking right in front of the hotel. You can see the beautiful water from your hotel window (ask for a room on the back side). We... More
